Goat milk yogurt and thyme biscuits

Last week I made my first biscuits ever. It was easier that I imagined and they turned out way better that I expected.

I followed the recipe in Micheal Ruhlman’s Ratio. And his procedure. The recipe is more of a ratio thingy, but the procedure was what sold me.

It was a puff pastry kind of procedure, where you “turn” the dough to create the flaky layers of dough.

Goat milk yogurt and thyme biscuits


  • 9 oz. flour
  • 1.5 oz. butter
  • 4.5 oz. goat milk yogurt
  • 3 oz. milk
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder


  1. Mix all the ingredients by cutting the butter into the flour. As soon as the dough is formed, form in a brick and place in the fridge until well chilled (about 1 hour). The dough should be speckled with butter clumps.
  2. Take the dough from the fridge and roll out in a long rectangle. Fold into thirds and place in the fridge to chill. Repeat the procedure 4-6 times. This will create the layers.
  3. Roll out the dough one final time and cut your biscuits. Bake at 400F for 20-30 minutes.
